So enter Francisco Elson, who has signed with the team according to HoopsHype. Elson, 35, has eight years in the NBA and spent last season with the Utah Jazz. He’s a 7-foot center out of the Netherlands via California (played his college ball in Berkley).
Elson and Dan Gadzuric worked out for the team this week. You’re not going to see a lot of Elson and he likely gets let go when Hawes and Vucevic return, but for now it looks like he is on the team.
